Be a Defender of Texas History
Texas History is under attack by those who do not know our diverse, rich history. Hood County supports our schools by hosting students to Stroll Thru Texas History and a Texas Independence Day Event every March 2. Our Texas Flag Display includes over 250 Texas Flags which line the historic Granbury Square. Downtown area and the roadside along the historic Acton Cemetery in honor of those who fought in the war for Texas Independence. Each flag bears the name and vital information of a Texas hero who served in that fight. The Texas Heroes Foundation, supported by Hood County Development District #1, exists because of volunteers who donate their time and resources to carry out these significant events every year. But we can’t do it alone. We need your support! Maintaining the knowledge and spirit of Texas history starts with our kids and with you. Please invest in our cause and help us by keeping Texas history alive for future generations.Posted by Texas Heroes Foundation on Wednesday, October 24, 2018
Wave the Flag of a Texas Hero
Waving the Flags of Texas heroes is one of the ways the Texas Hero Foundation celebrates Texas Independence Day. We fly Texas flags across Hood county, from the Court House to Elizabeth Crockett’s gravesite and the Stroll Thru Texas History. Each flag is labeled with a name and information about each hero who is documented to be at the Alamo during the 16 days before it’s fall and any veteran of the Texas Revolutionary War.
